Celtics’ Bradley a Rising Defensive Specialist
Bradley is a defensive luxury, a one-man force who allows a stingy .0678 points per possession, which ranks in the 96th percentile among all NBA players, according to Synergy Sports data.
Opponents also shoot 30.9 percent against Bradley and turn the ball over 14.7 percent of the time, the data state.
“In my eyes, he’s probably the best on-the-ball defender in the NBA,” Pierce said. “I’d be very surprised if he didn’t make the All-Defensive Team.”
